Event description
Join us for the 3rd annual Chicago Women in STEM Symposium to build a diverse community and promote tomorrow's women leaders in STEM

About this Event

Chicago Women in STEM Initiative was established in March of 2018 by Northwestern University postdoctoral fellows and graduate students to galvanize a local Chicago-area STEM community that actively promotes diversity, inclusion, and gender equity. Our second annual symposium on March 8th in 2019 attracted over 125 participants and focused on identifying and mitigating implicit bias, a key obstacle to STEM diversity and inclusion.

During the 2019-20 academic year, we continue to fill the mentoring gap for local early career women in STEM with the second iteration of STEM Circuits. We are also very excited to host our 3rd annual Chicago Women in STEM Symposium on Tuesday, March 10th, 2020 on the Chicago campus of Northwestern, where our theme will be promoting tomorrow’s women leaders in STEM.

Highlights:

  • An interactive morning workshop will help participants develop tools for negotiating difficult conversations in the workplace, such as salary & benefits, research project parameters, hiring & firing, and interrupting bias.

  • Attendees will have ample opportunity to interact with our partners in industry, academia, and law as well as local non-profits at our Career & Professional Development Fair. Lunch will be provided.

  • In a series of short talks, invited women leaders and role models in STEM will share their pathway to leadership with attendees, i.e. their motivations, obstacles they faced, career pivots, and advice for early career women.

  • Our keynote speaker will be Jhaymee Tynan, Assistant VP of Integration at Atrium Health, who was recently named by Modern Healthcare as one of the top 25 emerging leaders in healthcare.

  • The closing networking reception will facilitate direct interactions between early career women, volunteers, speakers, facilitators, and local female role models from academia and industry. Drinks and appetizers will be served.
